By Grey Larsen. Downloadable PDF plus MP3s, or Physical Book plus MP3s.

The Toolbox Exercises for Finger Coordination, a supplement to the book The Essential Tin Whistle Toolbox, is comprised of written transcriptions and audio recordings of 38 exercises for tin whistle, composed and performed by Grey Larsen. It also includes introductory and explanatory text.

Upon request, the author will autograph your (physical) book. Please specify your autograph wishes in the “Order Notes” field during checkout.

You may prefer the newer, expanded version of this work: Exercises for Finger Coordination for Tin Whistle and Irish Flute (download only). It has been augmented in the following ways:

1. The text has been expanded to address additional topics and adapted to address Irish flute as well as the tin whistle in D (also known as the pennywhistle). Since the standard Irish flute and tin whistle in D share a fingering system, the 38 exercises work for both of these instruments.

2. You no longer have to know how to read music to use these exercises. They are notated in tin whistle and Irish flute tablature as well as standard music notation.

3. The accompanying audio files come in two sets, one played on a tin whistle in D and the other on a standard Irish flute in D. You may download either audio file set, or both.

4. A fingering chart for tin whistle and Irish flute is included.

5. You may choose one of six versions of this eBook, each featuring one of the following note-naming conventions:

  • Latin Alphabet (popular in the United States and other countries)
  • Jianpu numerical system (popular in China and other countries)
  • Sargam (popular in India and other countries)
  • German “H” Nomenclature (popular among some musicians in Germany as well as in other countries that speak Germanic languages, such as the countries of Scandinavia)
  • “Movable Do” solfege (popular in many Germanic countries, in the US, and in many of the Commonwealth Countries, which are chiefly former countries of the British Empire)
  • “Fixed Do” or “Tonic Sol-Fa” solfege (popular in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Belgium, Romania, in Latin American countries and French-speaking Canada, as well as in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Russia, Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Bulgaria, Greece, Armenia, Albania, North Macedonia, Mongolia, Iran, Taiwan, the Middle East, Turkey and Israel)

Here you may listen to three samples of the tin whistle recordings that come with both versions:

Description

The Toolbox Exercises for Finger Coordination, a supplement to the book The Essential Tin Whistle Toolbox, is comprised of written transcriptions and audio recordings of 38 exercises for tin whistle, composed and performed by Grey Larsen. It also includes introductory and explanatory text.

The recordings feature a metronome click in the left channel and Grey playing tin whistle in the right channel. Using your left-right balance control, you may control the relative loudness of these two elements, or eliminate either element altogether.

The ability to move various combinations of fingers in precise coordination and synchronization is essential for good tin whistle playing. This ability involves not only combinations of fingers of one hand or the other, but often fingers of both hands.

If you are a beginner, gaining these skills may seem daunting to you, but in time and with practice, such coordination and dexterity will become second nature. If you are an intermediate player, you may wish to use these exercises to improve your finger coordination skills.

These 38 exercises are designed for the development of such finger coordination. Due to space limitations, it was not possible to include them in the book (with audio files) The Essential Tin Whistle Toolbox.

The text and transcriptions take up thirty-three 8.5 x 11 inch pages.

  • One zip file, 28 megabytes
  • The exercises in music notation, and the text, in one Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file
